Fellas -- my brother's 390 is missing, too, but ALWAYS when it shifts into
3rd. What say ye: transmission-related or just missing under load?

Ford truck list,

Anyone ever put a 67-72 body on a 73-79 pickup? Does it fit?

MDennis,

I had this same problem occur....and the fix was two pieces of 3/8" plate drilled as "adapters", meaning it bolts to the block and to the newer motor mount. I realize that this increases the angle of the motor slightly, but I ran this setup for probably 10 or 12 years with absolutely no trouble. Even fit in a few thrasher trips to Pismo Beach (those California guys know what I mean here)....

If I remember right, I had to do a slight amount of grinding on the back of the mounts to clear the bolt heads that go into the block....

Plus, you may be able to get away with something thinner than 3/8", maybe try 5/16"...

Let us know how it goes!!!!

Thanks for your response. I think you are absolutely right.

Erik, I think the rotational force on these studs is small compared
to say, hitting a rock or a pothole at 70mph.

I put a 68 full size truck body on a 73 full size frame. Everything bolted
up bolt for bolt. Was a very easy job. I did it to go from 2x4 to 4x4.

Schu, I'm in the process of this conversion. I'm doing a 72 crew cab 2x on a
75 crew cab frame. Everything has been going well so far. I'll have some
pics to post in a couple weeks.

>>>How "slightly bent" were they?? Can you tell it was bent by looking at the
push rod?

The bends were difficult to see.I got a known straight one and a suspect
pushrod and placed them ball to ball and rolled them on a counter
top.The bends were so small that the bent one would not touch the
straight one.

If you are going from one 4x2 frame to another, I would think that the bed
wouldn't bolt right up, you would have to redrill it, the frame became wider
in 73. I believe the F250 4x4 frames stayed the same width until mid 77, so
it would be a straight swap.

All of the components from the knuckle out will interchange between 1/2 and
3/4T 44 front axles. The axle shaft sizes are the same.

Jeff, yes the '78 parts will bolt right up to your '72. Be sure to check
out the Technical Article section on the FTE homepage. There's an article on
this conversion there.
